We were so very excited to join Kim, Tim and the whole family for a celebration at Perona Farms. Since moving to New Jersey we have been wishing and waiting to shoot a wedding at this gorgeous venue. Kim and Tim won our hearts on the Jersey Shore for their engagement at the beach. They were generous, kind, outgoing and just as comfortable on their beach cruisers as they were walking. We knew the wedding day was going to be EPIC and boy were we right. The minute we knocked on the door to the hotel room, we were greeted by Kim with tear filled eyes. A long overdue hug was the perfect welcome to what would be a fantastic day. The room was bustling with gorgeous women, hair and makeup and a tear-filled mother of the groom. There were tears all day, including myself. There was a lot of anticipation for them to finally see each other completely ready. Kim’s dress was one of a kind. Hanging in a room on a hanger did not do it justice. As soon as she put it on, it took a new life and hugged her tiny silhouette perfectly. There was a quiet street tucked behind the hotel where they saw each other for the first time. Both were comfy in their Converse All-Stars as they checked each other out from head to toe. After a few romantic moments, Kim yelled out, “We’re done”! HA! They headed towards the front where two giant yellow school buses awaited and all of their family and friends. A roar of cheering and clapping filled the air as they made their way to the bus.
Perona Farms is such a beautiful place to get married. What could possibly make this day even better? Their dog, Hudson, of course! He was very eager to see his mommy and daddy! I think they were probably just as excited to see him, too. The wedding party was so rad. They had the luxury of wearing All-Stars as well! It was a bright and sunny day and everyone was in such good spirit! In the fall, New Jersey has the greenest grass and the bluest skies. And today was one of those magical days. And let’s just talk about this barn for a minute. Holy, wow! All of the details really came together with the buckets of baby breath, lanterns, and touches of burlap. The rustic interior of the barn mixed with the uplighting made for a fantastic party vibe. The ceremony was held on the grounds right before the sunset. The arbor was built specifically for the wedding. It was so beautiful and the white flowing material made it very romantic and whimsical. The ceremony was heartfelt and full of laughter…and of course, more tears. It was short, sweet and they had a wine ceremony to celebrate their union. The party was unlike any party we have ever attended. There is only one way to really show you how much fun it really was. Photos…lots of photos. The band was unreal. The family and friends celebrated like it was their last night to be alive. It was insanely fun and going to be hard to top! Everyone was singing at the top of their lungs to every lyric in every song. What an incredible day…and night.
We are over the moon excited for Kim, Tim & Hudson. The day was beautiful, the night was crazy cool and the future never looked brighter. Thank you for making us feel like part of your family. We know this is just the beginning. Congrats to you both and to your families as well! Cheers!
